    I'm one of the people who watched the whole movie trilogy and then after that found out that The Godfatherexists as a novel. Naturally, I had to purchase it. It is a matter of taste, I suppose, but next to the movies - so elegant and grandiose - it feels a bit like reading pulp fiction. Maybe it's t...

    Indeed, dear reader, I did not hate The Godfather. I h-aa-ted it.How much did I hate it? Well I could start with a long dissemination of Mario Puzo's simplistic and repetitive prose. Puzo seems to think the reader needs a reminder of plot points that occured ten pages ago, and that unnecessarily dra...

    Puzo creates his awesome world & then plays with his own elements (those of detective noir and mob drama) like a world-class chess champion. Less than 1/4th into the narrative, POW! the Don has been shot. And, hold on a sec, who is the protagonist here? I thought Michael. Or the Consigliari Hagen. O...

    I’m sure you’ve had the timeless book-verses-movie argument before. Everyone has. You’re standing at the water cooler at work, and a coworker comes up to you and says “Boy, The English Patient is an excellent movie!” And maybe you say something back like “Michael Ondaat...

    It was a very good book. Alhamdulillah. I can't wait to get 'The Family Corleone' and 'The Sicilian' books.My favourite characters are Vito Corleone/Godfather and Michael Corleone.'The Godfather and The Godfather part 2' movies were awesome. 'The Godfather part 3' was pointless! The only part I actu...
